I love this book because I like all the dragons. I like Hiccup and Toothless because they aren’t like usual Vikings and dragons. Hiccup had to train him a different way not yelling at him. I think year 3 and older would like this boook.

I enjoyed reading How to train your dragon, this is the first Cressida Cowell book I have read and I loved it. Hiccup was the chiefs son so this meant that he would be the leader of the tribe, but he wasn't like Snoutlout, all big and strong. He was just a small boy also know as Hiccup the useless. But this changed when he needed to safe the whole tribe of Vikings. My favourite character was Hiccup because he tried his his best and doing that made him the hero of his tribe. I would recommend this book to someone who loves dragons.

I like Hiccup (main character) because he's unique and brave because he's different from all the other tribe.
I would definitely recommend this story to those who enjoy adventurous stories.

It was exciting reading about the dragons but sometimes it was a little bit boring when they just had really long conversations which weren't that exciting.
I would consider reading another book in this series if it was more exciting!

My favourite character has got to be Toothless because he is unique and different to the other dragons and helps Hiccup throughout the way . This has got to be one of my favourite books

Another great adventure. Hiccup is such a brave young viking. It just shows that it's not about how big your muscles are, or how much quicker you can be to be a hero. A hero can come in many different forms.

Really enjoyed reading this book time and time again. I love how Hiccup is the underdog, puts across a great message to the children. Even if you receive negative comments, never give up. I also like how the Viking’s are not all necessarily stereotypical “violent” characters.

It is fiction and I like Toothless

This is such a good book. I have seen all of the films and it was cool to read the books that inspired them. My favourite character is Hiccup. Hiccup has to go Dragon hunting but the Dragon he finds in isn't nearly as cool as his Night Fury Toothless in the films, but this book has a certain charm about it, that made me finish it in a few hours, like most of my other books that are around 200-250 pages. It leaves me impatiently waiting to read the next book in this series. Stay safe at home during Covid and peace out everyone!

I liked this book because I enjoyed reading about the lessons and dragons as well as the adventure mixed in.

This book is really fun and is full of suspense and disaster. Its the first book in a series of 12. The main character is called Hiccup Horrendous Haddock III. Hiccup is a very unexpected main character because he is really skinny and easy to overlook in a crowd of Vikings. He has a dragon the size of a pine marten which is tiny for a hunting Dragon. I recommend this to kids who like disaster stories and who are accident prone themselves.

11 Aug 2020

It was fiction and about Hiccup's memoirs when he was a kid
I loved it as it was based on the series/films

11 Aug 2020

How to train your dragon is a great book for people who like dragons. I recommend it to people who read lots of fairy tales and are interested in languages. My favorite character is Toothless.
